OBJECTIVES: Some patients develop ulnar nerve compression due to rare anatomical variations or malformations. The aims of this review are to provide a comprehensive overview of anatomical structures and variations that can cause ulnar nerve compression and to evaluate treatment options. METHODS: Case reports and case series about rare cases of unusual ulnar nerve compression published from January 2000 until April 2022 were obtained from databases Embase, MEDLINE, and Web of Science...

PURPOSE: The benefits of paraspinous flaps in adult complex spine surgery patients are established in the literature; however, their use in pediatric patients has not been well described. This study compares clinical outcomes with and without paraspinous muscle flap closure in pediatric patients who have undergone spine surgery. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of all pediatric spine surgeries at the University of California, San Francisco from 2011 to 2022...

INTRODUCTION: Free-flap (autologous) breast reconstruction demonstrates superiority over alloplastic approaches but is offered infrequently. Enhanced recovery protocols can address postoperative challenges, but most literature is limited to inpatient interventions and outcomes. This study describes an adoptable, longitudinally comprehensive and multidisciplinary recovery pathway for autologous reconstruction which adds to the current guidelines. The authors aimed to allow perioperative outcomes comparable to alloplastic reconstructions...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignant neoplasia in females worldwide. Overall survival and patients' choice for bilateral mastectomy have increased. It is therefore important to offer breast reconstructive procedures to improve patient quality of life and self-esteem. The aim of this systematic literature review is to quantify the outcome and sustainability of bilateral breast reconstruction using autologous, vascularized free tissue transfer. METHODS: A systematic literature review of PubMed, Cochrane, and the Web of Science databases was performed...

This Editorial discusses the recent overturning of a proposed Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services policy that reduced reimbursement for deep inferior epigastric perforator flap breast reconstruction. The authors highlight the importance of advocacy efforts in sustaining access to complex microsurgical procedures, even those under investigation such as breast reinnervation and lymphatic reconstruction.

The number of publications on the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion in plastic surgery has increased exponentially in the last 5 years. Numerous changes have been implemented. On June 29, 2023, the US Supreme Court ruled that affirmative action in college admissions is unconstitutional. Writing for the majority, Justice Roberts concluded that eliminating racial discrimination means eliminating all of it, and the Equal Protection Clause applies without regard to any differences of race, of color, or of nationality...

BACKGROUND: YouTube is a platform for many topics, including plastic surgery. Previous studies have shown poor educational value in YouTube videos of plastic surgery procedures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality and accuracy of YouTube videos concerning gynecomastia surgery (GS). METHODS: The phrases "gynecomastia surgery" (GS) and "man boobs surgery" (MB) were queried on YouTube. The first 50 videos for each search term were examined. The videos were rated using our novel Gynecomastia Surgery Specific Score to measure gynecomastia-specific information, the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool (PEMAT) to measure understandability and actionability, and the Global Quality Scale to measure general quality...

BACKGROUND: Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign developmental disorder of the bone that causes normal skeletal tissue to be replaced by excess fibrous tissue and poorly differentiated osteoblasts. Intraosseous xanthomas are benign intraosseous tumor growths characterized microscopically by the presence of lipid-laden foamy histiocytes, often with cortical expansion or disruption. Although FD commonly occurs in craniofacial bones, primary intraosseous xanthomas of the skull or facial skeleton are extremely rare...

BACKGROUND: Plastic and reconstructive surgery (PRS) is recognized as a highly competitive specialty. Since the first assessment of resident selection criteria in 2007, PRS residency programs have adopted holistic review processes and adapted to changes such as a decline in medical schools participating in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society as well as the recent transition to pass/fail grading for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) step 1 examination (Schultz et al...

BACKGROUND: Burns traditionally require frequent, painful dressing changes to minimize infection risk and promote wound healing. To improve care for our pediatric population, our institution adapted a skin graft donor site dressing into a "stick-down" burn dressing consisting of a one-time application of bacitracin and 3% bismuth tribromophenate/vaseline impregnated gauze (Xeroform) that adheres to the burn and peels off as new epithelialized skin forms. The goal of which is to minimize dressing change frequency and patient discomfort in a cost-effective, widely available manner...

BACKGROUND: Salvage surgery is a therapeutic option for recurrent or residual esophageal cancer after definitive chemoradiation therapy. This report aimed to describe the procedure of reconstruction after salvage esophagectomy involving great vessel resection using prosthetic grafts, a pectoralis major muscle (PM) flap, and free jejunal transfer, if required. To the best of our knowledge, no previous report has described the reconstruction of the defect after combined esophageal and great vessel resection...

BACKGROUND: Reconstructing full-thickness defects involving 50% to 75% of the horizontal length of the lower eyelid after medial and central full-thickness block resection can be challenging. As a disadvanatge, 1-stage reconstructions may require a free graft reconstruction of the posterior lamella. In addition, 2-stage reconstructions are associated with several complications, including erythema, and the eye must be temporarily closed after surgery. METHODS: The present study describes a single-surgeon retrospective case series...

BACKGROUND: Some surgeons use body mass index criteria within the patient selection processes before vaginoplasty, thereby limiting access to select obese patients. We sought to better characterize the effect of obesity on postoperative outcomes across multiple vaginoplasty techniques. METHODS: A single-center retrospective review of all transfeminine patients undergoing primary vaginoplasty procedures from December 2018 to July 2022 was conducted. Patients were stratified into cohorts according to the World Health Organization Obesity Class criteria...

INTRODUCTION: There is no consensus regarding perioperative hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for gender-affirming surgery (GAS). Common concerns for continuing perioperative HRT included risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or hematoma. However, discontinuing HRT is not risk free and may cause mood swing or increased anxiety. Our study aimed to investigate current patterns of HRT before GAS worldwide. METHODS: The first stage of Delphi technique was implemented by sending a 27-item survey to all surgeons (total n = 150; 94 plastic surgeon, 35 urologist, and 21 gynecologists) of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health who perform GAS...

BACKGROUND: This study aims to pioneer in evaluating women's representation in plastic surgery innovations, focusing on mammary prosthesis devices' inventorship. Despite growing gender parity in the field, women's involvement in innovation remains underexplored. This is especially crucial, as the predominant recipients of these innovative technologies are women, urging a necessity for broader female engagement in pioneering surgical advancements. METHOD: Patents under the "A61F2/12: Mammary prostheses and implants" classification between the dates January 1, 2011, to December 31, 2020, were identified using Google Patents Advanced...
